AmeriCorps NCCC

AmeriCorps Works for Disaster Services

Whenever and wherever disasters strike, destruction and confusion trail in their wake. AmeriCorps and national service members trained in disaster response are proving to be a valuable and cost-efficient resource for America as they help victims and survivors begin to rebuild their lives.

The Segal AmeriCorps Education Award is a post-service benefit received by participants who  complete a term of national service in an approved AmeriCorps program--AmeriCorps VISTA, AmeriCorps NCCC, or AmeriCorps State and National. The award is named after Eli Segal, one of the pioneers of the national service movement and the first CEO of the federal Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS).

The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) provides grants to national and local nonprofits, schools, government agencies, faith-based and other community organizations and other groups committed to strengthening their communities through volunteering.

Grants are either made directly to an organization or through an intermediary group that handles the distribution of grant funding. Eligibility requirements and funding opportunities vary by program. 

Under the Serve America Act (SAA), all grantees must conduct National Service Criminal History checks on participants and program employees in AmeriCorps, Foster Grandparents, Senior Companions, and any other programs funded by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) under National Service laws.

National Service Criminal History check regulations have been in effect since November 2007 when two-part checks were first required under specific programs, and only on individuals in recurring contact with a vulnerable population.
